Meet our Children's Dentist! 

Mahi Mavalli DDS, MS, PhD


Welcome to our office!  There is nothing I would rather do than practice pediatric dentistry.  It is a privilege to be given the opportunity to care for a child’s oral health care from infancy to adulthood.  I believe that quality care of children requires compassion, effective communication and trust.  I am dedicated to making your child's dental experience enjoyable and comfortable while promoting good oral health habits for now and the future.  I have undergone rigorous advanced training to provide dental treatment to infants, children, adolescents and adults with special needs (medical, physical or intellectual disability).  Being a father of two young children has helped me be a better pediatric dentist, and I enjoy working as a partner with parents to educate and care for their children’s oral health.
